Patton , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 449min

George S. Patton was a general who achieved greatness in his field by contradicting his own nature. A cavalryman steeped in romantic military tradition, he nevertheless pulled a reluctant American military into the most advanced realms of highly mobile armored warfare. An autocratic snob, Patton created unparalleled rapport and loyalty with the lowliest private in his command. An outspoken racist, he led the only racially integrated U.S. military unit in World War II. A profoundly insecure individual, he made his Third Army the most self-confident and consistently victorious fighting force in the European theater. An exuberantly profane man, he prayed daily and believed God had destined him for military greatness. Alan Axelrod delivers a fascinating account of Patton's fascinating life and legacy. This book is one of a series on great generals. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian Emerson. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/blak/001771/bk_blak_001771_sample.mp3.

A Shiver of Wonder: A Life of C. S. Lewis , Hör...

He was an atheist who became the best-selling Christian author in history. He was an intellectual snob who was transformed into a man who had a mind and heart awake to holiness. He had no children, but few men in history have been so deeply loved by children. He was a mirror reflecting another Face. He was an Oxford Don and a Cambridge Professor. He was an expert in Medieval and Renaissance English who gripped the imagination of millions through his wartime broadcasts of Christian truth for the BBC. These broadcasts later became his famous book, Mere Christianity, through which more people were converted to faith than through any other Christian book in the 20th century. His involvement in Oxford University's Socratic Club became the highlight of many a student's University days. He was C. S. Lewis; and his name is synonymous with legendary kindness, intellectual rigour, a love of nature and perhaps his greatest creations, Aslan and the land of Narnia. His writings still bring shivers of wonder to his fans. Controversial genius that he was, his life is a beacon for those who struggle with doubt and faith. 1. Language: English.

A mother who invented her past, a father who was often absent, a son who wondered if this could really be his family...Richard Glover's favourite dinner-party game is called 'Who's Got the Weirdest Parents?' It's a game he always thinks he'll win. There was his mother, a deluded snob who made up large swathes of her past and who ran away with Richard's English teacher, a Tolkien devotee, nudist and stuffed toy collector. There was his father, a distant alcoholic who ran through a gamut of wives, yachts and failed dreams. And there was Richard himself, a confused teenager, vulnerable to strange men, trying to find a family he could belong to. As he eventually accepted, the only way to make sense of the present was to go back to the past - but beware of what you might find there. Truth can leave wounds - even if they are only flesh wounds. Part poignant family memoir, part rollicking venture into a 1970s Australia, this is a book for anyone who's wondered if their family is the oddest one on the planet. The answer: no. There is always something stranger out there. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Richard Glover. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/boli/002529/bk_boli_002529_sample.mp3.

I'm always the one shoved around by everyone - but even him?At least he understands when it's a case of mistaken identity. I certainly never said I was marrying my sister.

I wouldn't mind changing that. This mistaken identity book is steaming hot and ready for your eager ears. With no cheating and a HEA, you won't want to put this one down.

'The Book of the Year, perhaps of the decade, has to be Matthew Sturgis's Oscar ' TLS , Books of the Year. NOMINATED FOR THE WOLFSON HISTORY PRIZE 2019. A SUNDAY TIMES BOOK OF THE YEAR. 'Simply the best modern biography of Wilde ... A terrific achievement' Evening Standard . 'Page-turning ... Vivid and desperately moving. However much you think you know Wilde, this book will absorb and entertain you' Sunday Times . 'Wonderfully exciting ... Sturgis's great achievement is to take on board his great flurry of contradictions' Craig Brown, Mail on Sunday . '[Sturgis] is a tremendous orchestrator of material, fastidious, unhurried, indefatigable' Observer . 'Oscar Wilde is more fashionable than ever ... Sturgis's account of the hearing at the Old Bailey is as gripping as it is grim' Guardian . 'The Book of the Year, perhaps of the decade, has to be Matthew Sturgis's Oscar which captures the wit, the love-ability, the dramatic genius, the insane self-destructiveness, the originality of Wilde ... [Sturgis] is the greatest chronicler of the 1890s we have ever had' TLS , Books of the Year. Oscar Wilde's life - like his wit - was alive with paradox. He was both an early exponent and a victim of 'celebrity culture': famous for being famous, he was lauded and ridiculed in equal measure. His achievements were frequently downplayed, his successes resented. He had a genius for comedy but strove to write tragedies. He was an unabashed snob who nevertheless delighted in exposing the faults of society. He affected a dandified disdain but was prone to great acts of kindness. Although happily married, he became a passionate lover of men and - at the very peak of his success - brought disaster upon himself. He disparaged authority, yet went to the law to defend his love for Lord Alfred Douglas. Having delighted in fashionable throngs, Wilde died almost alone: barely a dozen people were at his graveside. Yet despite this ruinous end, Wilde's star continues to shine brightly. His was a life of quite extraordinary drama. Above all, his flamboyant refusal to conform to the social and sexual orthodoxies of his day make him a hero and an inspiration to all who seek to challenge convention. In the first major biography of Oscar Wilde in thirty years, Matthew Sturgis draws on a wealth of new material and fresh research to place the man firmly in the context of his times. He brings alive the distinctive mood and characters of the fin de siècle in the richest and most compelling portrait of Wilde to date.
